Someone Bought This: WCW Nitro Girls dolls and other strange unreleased figures

WCW Nitro Girls Dolls Unreleased Figures

 

Today’s entry is a bit of a cheat because… well… nobody bought this!

Let me explain.

The owner of the WCW Worldwide blog found a collector’s guide to WCW figures and toys (click on that link for his blog entry about it with sample pages).

One of the sections in the guide covers unreleased WCW toys (that’s the image above).

The toys that really caught my attention on the page are the WCW Nitro Girls dolls.

Who on earth were those supposed to appeal to?

Girls wouldn’t be interested in them because for the most part, little girls don’t watch wrestling and only want fashion dolls like Barbie.

Guys wouldn’t be interested in them because they aren’t wrestlers and you can’t really “play” with them unless you want to:

A). Make them dance (YAWN!)

or

B). Have them wrestle each other (?) or get beat down by one of the male wrestlers (!).

Is it any wonder these never made it to stores?

Check out some of the other weird figures on that page like the Cyborg Assortment!

    Ok the first row with the nitro active wrestlers seems kind of cool. Now if it would have been executed correctly is another story, but the idea is cool. Maybe the Nitro girls action figures could be if you wanted to have your own Vince Russo story line playset, where you do the most nonsensical, like making a Nitro Girl WCW champ. I can see the ads now for the Vince Russo story set (Item on a poll set not included). The cyborg thing is just dumb, but what’s up with the gross out Brett Hart? And what exactly is gross about him? Oh and I for got to mention the back talkers, they look like rejected bobble heads. So yeah the one good idea out of this is surrounded by dumb ideas. Sounds like typical WCW in 2000 :P

    Judging from the picture and the scale of the dolls (and their Real!rooted!hair!), it looks like they WERE planning on marketing them as Barbie-sized twelve inch dolls. For those little girls who want to know what Whysper would look like in Barbie’s clear heels.

    The Back Talking Wrestlers actually WERE released…and I must unfortunately admit that I ACTUALLY owned all 3!!!

  4. Jordan Mishkin says:

    Gross Out Brett Hart sounds like a TNA Correspondent for Wrestlecrap Radio.

    Does the Goldberg figure say, “No I’m not Steve Austin smartasss!!!!!!!!!” Sid could say, “I’m half the doll that you are!!!!” I never realized how muscular Kurrgan was standing next to the not Stone Cold and Sid back talkers.

    Gross Out Bret Hart?!

    “I am sick of everyone making fun of my giant hand. The first such incident happened in 1972 when…”

    I can imagine the “cyborg” wrestlers being created in that robot factory from the WCW Saturday Night intro.

    Thanks again for the love for the page, Paul!

    Those Gross-Out Wrestlers were kinda interesting as they had body parts that fell apart to reveal something gruesome underneath. For the released Sting and Sid figures, the Stinger’s face would peel off and Sid had a removable cranium for quick access to his brain. Not too sure what Hart’s figure would have had.

    I will say that the Cyborg Bret Hart figure looks pretty amazing and I wouldn’t have hesitated to pick that one up.

    according to bret’s book, they did give him a bunch of the figure of him at a convention in vegas, i believe. the noise ones, according to him, got him some looks on the plane, since every time they had turbulence, they’d start talking

    Shouldn’t the Nitro active Nash’s quad just explode? And the cyborg doll should have a lot more metal in the leg area…

  11. The Doctor of Style says:

    Ah yes, wrestling and Salvador Dali go so well together, so why not make a bunch of wacked-out cyborg toys.

    Despite his tank top, Kevin Nash was never sexy. As a cyber-werewolf, he’s just pathetic.

    That Bret cyborg figure looks pretty damn cool, actually. Wish they would have been released, I’d track one of those bad boys down…

    Add on: Reminds me of Archangel from the X-Men.
